We had a great time being guided through these caves by our guide Mich, who was informative, entertaining and made us feel safe throughout. He also spoke excellent English and really added a lot of fun and interest to things e.g. in relation to the plant and animal life.

The geological formations are fascinating and beautiful, and we particularly found floating in the water in total darkness for a minute a really memorable experience. Walking and swimming through these caves is magical and we really strongly recommend it. They're also doing lots of conservation work and clearly care about the history and future of the place, which is great.

You can't take any items in with you to avoid them getting lost which also means you can't take any pictures. They have a professional photographer taking (quite good) pictures, but the price for the photos is quite steep - 99USD for all the pictures, or 25USD per individual picture.

The water is not too cold (about 23°C) - wetsuits are optional and not everyone in the group chose to use them and they were fine. Water shoes are also provided if you don't have your own.

Lunch afterwards was a small buffet, not fantastic, but okay. We're a vegetarian and a vegan and we did okay (tortillas/rice/beans/veg/fruit).

Shuttle picked us up and dropped us off without any issues - very convenient.

What you need to know about this: go directly to riosecreto.com and they have a chat option. We got an amazing gentleman, Macias Wilverth, who booked us in no time, being very helpful and giving us a good deal. He answered absolutely all our questions on at most one minute, the payment was very fast and worry free. Five BIG stars to Macias!

The microbus picked us exactly at the established time, and got us to Rio Secreto entrance. The Plus tour includes: The dry cave visit (it's really interesting), a bike trip with a string drop in a dry cenote (interesting and funny), and the main attraction, Rio Secreto cave, where you walk and swim for about 500 m one way and back. If you're not a speleologist, it's going to let you speechless. The work done by water in those calciferous layers is pure art. We enjoyed every second of it (oh well, our guide, Milo, was funny and nice and this helped a lot as well).

Unfortunately, no pictures are allowed, theoretically (if you have an underwater phone probably you can use it), and here comes the worst catch: the pictures package costs a lot: 100$, as much as the tour with pick up itself. It's kind of ridiculous. Also, for these money they can offer a better lunch (which is kind of bad). However, the tour itself is full 5 stars!

After a very fun but tiring day snorkeling at Cozumel, my family and I decided to do one more excursion. The Cozumel trip we booked online and did ourselves without any help from the hotel. It proved to be a lot of work.

However, after speaking with a nice gentleman at the tour booking desk at the Hard Rock Mayan Riviera where we were staying for a week we told him exactly what we were looking for and he told us about this half day excusion.

We booked it and it turned out to be much less money than the Cozumel snorkeling tour. The shuttle arrived on time at our hotel to pick us up and after a short drive we were there. It takes a bit to get to the actual cave exploring area and you must wear a wet suit and wet shoes. Once you are finally ready to go a guide will take you into the cave explaining all the sights you will see and experience.

Our guide was fantastic. He's been there since this opened and was so knowledgeable. There was a French couple on our tour and he spoke fluently to them in their native language. I really liked that. He aslso found a little butterfly deep in the cave while we were on the tour and he made sure it got out of the cave safely. Which I was really impressed with. Such a cool guy!

You will swim in water in this cave and it's quite something. At one point, our guide turned off his light for a little bit so we could experience just how pitch black and quiet this cave is.

Once the tour was over, we got out of our wet clothes and had a fantastic lunch of fresh made Mexican cuisine. After that we were given the option to but pictures that were taken during the tour. Yes, they are expensive which I didn't like but I can see why they don't want people bringing their own phones down there. It can get dangerous if you're trying to snap pictures instead of looking where you are going and following the guides instructions.

After a short ride back to the hotel, the half day is complete and back in time to do more swimming at the Hard Rock Hotel pools!

Hadn’t realised we would be underground for an hour and a half. Our guide Nunes was brilliant so knowledgeable and kept us safe as a group.
You do need to be able to climb up rocks and into water pools. Once the water was as high as my neck and the tunnel quite small so not great if claustrophobic! The different carvers were full of stalactites and mites absolutely beautiful. The water was so clear and it was a bit chilly! Glad of the wet suit be it a bit too large!
Hat hats with lights too which at one point we turned off it was a bit eerie as you couldn’t see a thing!

We were given a lovely lunch and drink after the tour.

Only disappointment was that the photographer who goes with you didn’t take that great pictures they were very rushed! No getting into position. We were given the chance to purchase pictures they were mostly on a laptop screen so great to see. We were offered an iPad and couldn’t see very well. I ordered two pictures at 25$ each which I think is a crazy price! You can’t take any cameras or phones in yourself due to it being so dark inside!

Shame the photos are such a rip off. Beautiful place to visit

hello! Thank you very much for letting us your comment. We are glad to know that the tour was to your liking and you had an incredible time. We will take your comments into account to improve our experience. At Río Secreto we care about your safety and the preservation of the cave, that is why cameras are not allowed to enter, in addition to the fact that it would be very difficult to take good photographs due to the light conditions. The income from our photography project helps us preserve more than 150 hectares of jungle, home to more than 150 species of animals. It also contributes to our associations "Jaguar Wildlife Center" and "Centinelas del agua". We look forward to your visit again in this underground paradise. Cheers! We would love to see you here very soon, on your next vacation. Greetings!💙

We booked a private tour through Amstar at our hotel for $110 per person - 3 adults & 3 teens. This tour exceeded our expectations in every way. Aaron was our tour guide and we felt very lucky to have him. We learned so much about the jungle, the wildlife, the caves and the Mayan culture. Aaron was extremely professional, spoke great English and treated each one of us with a great deal of respect. Aaron went out of his way to explain everything we were doing and about to do, which made us all feel very comfortable. We booked the biking/rappelling tour + the cave tour. Aaron took his time, we never felt rushed, he made us feel like we were the only ones in the place. The facilities in the jungle were top notch and they provided water and bananas to us after the bike ride. We can’t say enough good things, it was a great way to spend a rainy day and we made memories that we’ll never forget. We’ll always remember the good laughs we had in the swimming cave while the lights were out. Thank you Aaron!!

Overall really fun and unique experience in Cancun. The underground river was the (obvious) highlight, which is 5/5. However, the Plus add-ons were a little underwhelming.

The bike ride was purely a means of transportation. We rode on a regular street, with no sights to see. The dry cave was atmospheric and a good start to the day. The rappel was fun but short. If you've rappeled before, you can take your time and admire the cave as you descend, but many beginners in the group were too focused on the descent itself. They couldn't control their speed and fell more quickly than optimal - some felt the friction heat through the provided gloves.

The Plus option is nice if you want to fill out your day. But it isn't anything special for the extra $20.

They never refunded my money after cancelation. I cancelled two weeks in advance (they required a week), and was told I will receive a refund. I called 4 times, and spoke to someone who said they process refunds in "administration" and there was no way to talk to them. I wrote numerous emails. Then disputed the charge through my credit card company. It has been 4 months and no refund.

When we first arrived at Rio Secreto, Mikel Garcia, the Group Coordinator, was quick to welcome us with a warm greeting and big smile! Mikel displayed great leadership qualities by delegating when appropriate and making sure the process went smoothly for all. His warmth, experience and passion for his work, was obvious as he was meeting with all the groups. He explained what would be entailed in getting all the paperwork signed, equipment and information we needed to have a safe and fun cave experience! Once we loaded on the bus for the short drive to our beginning location, Mr Garcia answered all our questions and shared many tips and suggestions to make the most of our trip!
The entire staff at Rio Secreto were friendly, helpful and most of all well informed !!
I HIGHLY recommend you take the time to visit Rio Secreto! It is quite possible this experience will be the HIGHLIGHT of your vacation!! The caves were absolutely amazing and the Mayan history came to life!!
Thank you to all the Rio Secreto staff who made our cave experience a memorable one!!

Rio Secreto was a wonderful experience for our family. We were lucky enough to get Miguel as our tour guide and Alberto as our photographer / co-tour guide. The two made our adventure fun and informative. Miguel told us a lot about the cave system, the wildlife, and different facts about crystals and how the different formations in the cave, such as stalagmites and stalactites, are formed. Miguel and Alberto were also mindful of everyone's safety and comfort, offering a helping hand where the rock was slippery or there was a sudden drop, and explaining everything we were about to do. Perhaps one of the most memorable experiences of our adventure was when we all turned off our headlamps and spent a minute in complete darkness while floating in the water. Before doing this, Alberto and Miguel made sure that everyone was comfortable doing this. However, what made our experience the most enjoyable was how cheerful and welcoming both of our tour guides were. They were a pleasure to talk to and often joked around, making everyone feel at ease and welcome. Miguel and Alberto made a great team, and they made our Rio Secreto experience informative, safe, and best of all, incredibly fun and eye-opening!

We did the Plus tour and I think it would have been better to do the cave tour only. It made for a very long day. We got picked up at ~9:15, waited for tickets and group assignment, drove another 15-20 minutes to the caves and then we finally started after 11:00. Our guide, Hector, was great and a lot of fun. We did the dry cave, which was interesting. We then did a short bike ride to another location and repelled slowly into a cave, probably my teen girls favorite part. We walked through the wet cave and then went back to suit up for the larger wet cave. Wet cave tour was a bit long (1.5 hours) seeing as we were just in the other wet cave for a bit. We did not eat "lunch" until we were done with everything which was about 4:15ish. First you had to be pushed through the picture ordering which was disappointing.
Like everyone says, ridiculous. $25 each or $100 for all digitally and they are not great. These days everyone likes to take their own pictures, just silly you can't even take a go pro. Food was average at best. Worst part was trying to get back to the hotel. Sooo disorganized. Our guide said the van would take our groups back to our hotels, no stopping at the main complex. Wrong. They took us back up there where there is about 10 vans and were told to get out. Then we are re-shuffled into another van and the person spoke very little English. Wasn't super confident were in the right van to get back. But we got back around 6:00. We stayed in Rivera Maya so at least we didn't have to all the back to Cancun. And the tipping signs in the vans were a little off putting. We are paying $90 a person and there is an employee who only lives mainly off tips??? You take several van rides so that is kind of lot.
